Project Duration: 2011-present
CPHSS is part of the evaluation team for the Institute of Clinical and Translational Sciences
(ICTS) Tracking & Evaluation Program. Washington University in St. Louis was granted a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) in 2007 and consequently formed the ICTS. The aims of the institute are 1) to provide the infrastructure needed for interdisciplinary research; 2) to create a centralized home for Clinical and Translational Research Training and Career Development Programs for multiple disciplines; and 3) to establish inter-institutional partnerships for clinical research and training with community, academic, health care, and industrial organizations in the St. Louis region.
The Tracking & Evaluation Program of the ICTS is a collaborative program comprised of partners from CPHSS, the Washington University School of Medicine, Becker Library, and members of the ICTS Administrative Core. This is a large-scale institutional and scientific evaluation designed to utilize evidence-based and innovative evaluation methods to provide information necessary to ICTS leadership to make effective decisions leading to organizational change. The evaluation is also designed to demonstrate the impact of ICTS support on scientific outcomes that result in clinical applications and meaningful community health results.
